What is a bias-related incident?

A bias-related incident refers to an occurrence where individuals are targeted or affected based on prejudice, stereotypes, or discriminatory attitudes related to characteristics such as race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or other protected attributes. 

What is the Bias Incident Reporting Form?

The report is submitted directly to the Office of Equity and Diversity, who will respond via email or phone within 48 hours when the University is open to conduct additional inquiry and ensure the well-being of the affected individual(s) and campus community, while providing resources and options. 

Eastern’s Office of Equity and Diversity encourages students and other members of the campus community to report bias-related incidents to promote an environment of inclusive excellence where all members of the Eastern Connecticut State University community feel welcome, included, and respected in a supportive environment that embraces diversity, equity, and fairness in all endeavors.
